    Hahaha. More of Roy's "cheater bullets"... Sorry, running joke.

    My preference is for the 358-158 Lyman mold. Lawn steel shooting in Contender with 10" barrel, and S&W model 27 with 8.375 inch barrel, I win my share of nickels with that RFN 160 grain bullet in front of Promo powder (basically Red Dot with out the red dots

Fired from a Uberti rolling block pistol. Same POA, same POI. In my opinion, the Lee projectile had a slight advantage toppling steel. Different nose ogive and larger meplate on Lee, might be the reason. My test was steel at 50 to 70 yds. Of the 20 Lee slugs, not a single missed target. Oh yeah, it does rain bullets!

    I read this post last night and I don't when Lee listed it but I missed it when I bought the other 3 158 grainers. Went online at Lee liked the looks ordered the 6 hole mold and handles. Get it in about 14 days.
    Thanks for the post and comments.
